Yosemite National Park climbing closures and conditions.
Yosemite National Park has yearly closures for Peregrine Falcon Protection March 1- July 15.
Always check the Yosemite website Peregrine Closure page at nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/… for the most current details and park alerts, and to learn more about the peregrine falcon, and how closures help it survive. This page also shares closures and warning due to current fires, smoke, etc.
This climb follows the obvious left-facing ramp/corner between Ahab and the first pitch of Salathe. Start in a crack system slightly to the right and then move left into the corner about 40ft up. Somewhat awkward climbing leads to a small ledge with an old 1/4" bolt on it. Above this you have to transfer from a good finger crack on the left over to a shallow groove on the right. Then another traverse out onto the face is made to gain a bolted anchor out right.
Bring pro to 2" but it mostly takes finger size stuff.
Rap with 2 ropes. The bolts are good.
